Cucumber belongs to the gourd family and is cultivated across the world, with its origin lying in South Asia. Classed as a fruit it is often prepared and eaten like a vegetable. Used as an accompaniment to both sweet and savoury dishes it is found in salads and also acts as a garnish for cocktails. It’s light and sweet taste is complemented by a smooth note thanks to the fact that it’s 95% water.
When it comes to vaping, cucumber can be found paired with tropical and garden variety fruits helping to emphasise their sweet and juicy notes. It can also help soften tart berry and menthol flavours offering a smooth counterbalance. Available in a range of VG mix ratios, you can find varieties that can be used with small vape starter kits and versions that are best suited for larger sub ohm devices and kits. High wattage vaping will emphasise the floral sweetness of this fruit, whereas switching a lower wattage / power will bring out the smoother notes.
